The Skatalites

When Jamaica's premier Ska band, The Skatalites, began performing in 1964 they were so hot that their first rehearsal became a show. So many people had lined up outside the venue, they decided to just charge admission and let everybody in!

Wishbone Ash

From their meteoric rise to stardom in the early '70s as "Best New Band in the UK", through 36 years and 40 albums, this band still knows how to rock. The famous twin lead attack that is their trademark has never sounded better.

That Andy Powell was named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the top 20 guitarists of all time is evident every time they take the stage and proclaim their place in the genre of Classic Rock.
